Our Mission

The members of Cooperators United for Mitchell-Lama are resident- cooperators of Mitchell-Lama/limited-equity cooperatives who are committed to preserving quality not-for-profit housing cooperatives, in perpetuity, both for themselves and for future generations of New Yorkers.

To further this mission, we will:

INFORM and assist shareholders who oppose conversions to market rate (sometimes referred to as “privatization”).

ADVOCATE for legislative and regulatory reform that will preserve and strengthen Mitchell-Lama cooperatives.

EDUCATE Mitchell-Lama residents, government officials, and the general public about the stunning success and many advantages of the Mitchell-Lama model for cooperative living.
